      Honestly the presentation of this is very disappointing and underwhelming. It reeks of laziness and an amateur mentality. How difficult would it have been to put this into a simple table-like format that reflects the quality of presentation from recent arena championships?
      why u are that rude , hes new in this and wanted give a fast information confident , it’s not final version yet.

    • @Emii The table format is a vast improvement from the earlier presentation of the information. The current format can be improved to make it more readable.

      Team names should be on the 2nd column before player names and should be Bold. Doing the format that way improves it by: (a) making it clear that each row/line is a team, (b) draws people's attention to a team (c) avoids confusion that the team name is not some 7th player.

      Lastly, if you are going to delete my posts, can you provide me a reason as to why you are doing this?

      1. I edited her post to add the team names, Emii wasn't in over the weekend, thank you for the feedback though

      2. I deleted your post because it was off-topic.

      3. In the end, the format really doesn't matter as much as the information getting across. Yes, it could have been prettier, however, with all the other preparations that had to be done, we just wanted to get the info out while still handling other things.
